Chromecast Video v1.0.1 is gone from the Chrome Web Store. It has been replaced by Videostream for Google Chromecast™ 1.0.4:

or
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...lfkahogjfhliab

I guess the only difference is apps name.

Temporary until Google gets everything back together.

1.0.4
After some Google drama, we're back up and running. Turns out they hated that our icon was so cleverly similar to their Chrome icon. We're back now, better than ever after being pulled for 3 days.

BTW: you can have both version installed.

Too bad, I though the old name was kind of catchy.

No other changes? I guess we can wait for the next update then.

The old name violated Google's Terms of Service I would imagine as well.

It very much violated many Google's branding guidelines haha.

Edit:
The latest update basically just updated the icons, etc... and added some share buttons.

Is there any way to control Videostream from a remote device? I've dabbled with RemoteCast but it didn't seem to pick up on the Videostream content.

Can't get it to work
I'm trying to launch the app from my chrome browser and it keeps giving me an error saying that we can't connect to your chromecast. I checked the list and I have Chrome browser installed on my laptop, google cast extension as well and both are using the same wifi. I just don't know why it is happening to me. I even disabled my kaspersky internet security, but no luck at all....Is anyone having the same issue with me ?

I got the same error message. I do not have a antivirus.
